In three episodes, Isaiah tells about the Assyrian invasion of Judah and Hezekiah's response, Hezekiah's sickness, and Hezekiah's allying with Babylonian rebels. In these three vignettes Isaiah asks the question, "where do you place you trust?" In the face of foreign invasion, and personal health, Hezekiah trusts God, but faced with the opportunity to build security through alliance, he caves in. In our lives we are faced with the challenge to put our trust in God, not our insurance, retirement account, savings, political party, or the Western political-industrial complex--which can be a difficult challenge. God meets us in this challenge the same way He met the Hebrews of Hezekiah's day.
